Last week: 21 (-6) Record: 3-7 The Phillies have won more recently than the Eagles. The Eagles’ 3 wins this season have come by a combined 4 points. They’ve now lost 6 games in a row and appear to have completely quit on Andy Reid. Last week I said that Andy Reid be brought back if Foles impressed, but Foles did the exact opposite of impressing last week, going 21 of 46 for 204 yards and 2 touchdowns against Washington’s crappy secondary in a 31-6 loss. In fact, he was so bad that Michael Vick has made a miraculous recovery from a concussion that looked season ending last week. I think Reid knows he’s a dead man walking and doesn’t care anymore and his players certainly don’t either. Expect them to bring in a new regime who brings in their own quarterback because neither Vick or Foles is a long term solution.

Jeff Lurie Should Fire Andy Reid Now if He Insists on Going Back to Vick

Ever since Michael Vick went down with his concussion, I’ve been pounding the drum that Nick Foles should remain the Eagles’ starting QB for the rest of the season, regardless of how he or the team performs.

A Philadelphia Eagles Thanksgiving: What We Can Be Thankful For

It’s true that this 2012 Philadelphia Eagles team has played more like the prey, rather than birds of prey, but in the spirit of Thanksgiving I thought it would be better to take a look at the positive side of things. There hasn’t been much to cheer about this season, unfortunately.  And, we’re facing a future with the most uncertainty since after the 1998 season.  However...
